Oakland Raiders (3-2) at Green Bay Packers (5-1)
Venue and weather: Lambeau Field, Sunny, 56°F at kickoff
Prediction: The Oakland Raiders have been full of surprises both on and off the field, and in Week 7, they take their version of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus to Wisconsin to battle Aaron Rodgers, his Green Bay Packers, and all of the loyal cheese heads at historic Lambeau Field.
Jon Gruden is a much better coach than Matt LaFleur is, but everything else in this one favors ‘The Pack’. The last time we saw the Raiders, they snuck up on the Chicago Bears and won. Don’t expect Green Bay to fall asleep behind the wheel after seeing that. Score: Raiders 17, Packers 31

San Francisco 49ers (5-0) versus Washington Redskins (1-5)
Venue and weather: FedEx Field, Light Rain, 59°F at kickoff
Prediction: The San Francisco 49ers have been one of the obvious surprises of the 2019 regular season. Sure, everyone thought that they could be decent, but who had them at 5-0 after five weeks? Following their Week 6 dismantling of the Los Angeles Rams, everyone is finally ready to give the Niners credit.
They’re for real. Richard Sherman may not want our endorsement, but here it is anyway. The NFC’s lone undefeated team will continue their streak on Sunday versus a bad Washington Redskins team. Score: Niners 31, ‘Skins 13
